5 fun facts about Line Messenger

Released 4 years ago , LINE messenger is Japan's most successful messaging application and currently boasts more than 600 million active mobile users – some 200 million fewer than rival WhatsApp.

The application is available across all major mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Firefox OS and Nokia feature phones.

Here are 5 interesting things you could do with line..

1.Free Voice & Video Calls

Founders and developers of LINE have continually maintained that their aim is to reshape communication around the globe and bring you closer to your family, friends, and loved ones—for free.

The application allows users to place Real-time voice and video calls at no cost whatsoever.

2. Set a timer on texts to make them disappear

Self-destructing messages aren't just for Snapchat. You can set a timer for your texts on LINE to make them disappear. Timers can be set for as little as 2 seconds to as long as 2 weeks.

After the set time has been exceeded, viewed messages will be automatically deleted from Line’s servers. Unread messages will be automatically deleted from Line’s servers two weeks after their receipt.

3.Save bandwidth on media sent

For most people using mobile data and not wi-fi, data conservation plays a big part in terms of what they can view, share, send or play.

By default, Line applies compression to the photos you send. If you're working on a limited data plan , navigate to More -> Settings -> Images & Video and switch the quality of the media sent from "standard" to "low."

4.Create a Memory Board

Line allows users in both group and individual chats to create a message board where they can post pictures and text that they may want to refer back to. Easily document the photos and messages that mean the most to you. Think of it as a personal blog on your messaging app, how cool is that ?

5.Express yourself with stickers

Self expression has never been this fun and easy. With over 10,000 stickers and emoticons,you can express a wider range of emotions.

The app also has a built-in Sticker Shop which allows users to purchase different packs, including some licenced Disney and Coca Cola sets.

According to figures the company released for its fourth anniversary last month, up to 2.4 billion stickers and emojis are sent each day by its users. Almost half, or 48 percent, express happiness, but the rest reflect emotions ranging from sadness (10 percent) to anger (6 percent) and surprise (5 percent). - Tech Crunch
